Hurvitz Brain Sciences Summer Student Research Program

Summer studentships typically run from May to September of each year. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in a university program and have at least a B+ average in their most recent year of study. Summer student positions through the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program are not posted. Instead, students are responsible for contacting individual scientists directly whose research may be of interest to see if he or she is willing to supervise a student and to discuss potential projects.

You can find the list of scientists and their contact information on the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program web pages. There, you can find the research interests of most of the scientists within the program, with links to profiles where available.

*Please note the following scientists have indicated they will NOT be hiring summer students: Drs. Herrmann, Lanctôt, Mochizuki, Rector and Stuss.

Summer studentships are offered on a matching basis (at least 1:1), whereby the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program provides an amount of funding and the supervisor pays the rest for a minimum of 12 weeks. Scientists apply for these awards with a specific student and project in mind.
